DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit annually ranks at the top of the list amongst the most violent cities in the United States, but the latest figures show the number of homicides are on pace to be much lower than last year.

As of Friday, there were 315 homicides, which puts the city on pace to have fewer than 350 homicides for only the fourth time in the last 30 years.  Last year on December 20th, the city had already recorded 375 homicides.

Although the numbers are a positive sign, police officials and residents of the city say they still aren't pleased with the rampant violent crime throughout Detroit.
